Welcome to Tabb Tiger Guidance! 


My name is Jen Richardson, and this is my seventh year as the school counselor at Tabb Elementary School.  I have lived in Virginia for the past 25 years, having come south from New York.  I went to the University of Richmond and worked in the field of television production before returning to school to get my Master of Education at the College of William & Mary.  I  worked as a middle school counselor in Gloucester, VA before coming to York County.  Currently, I live in Williamsburg with my two children, my dog and my cat.


I believe that all students have the ability to grow academically, emotionally, and socially.  I am here to help students discover their strengths, foster a love of learning, and help build positive relationships with others.  I do monthly classroom guidance lessons, provide individual and/or group counseling, and collaborate with parents, teachers, administrators, and outside organizations to help students be successful.


I am also the contact person for the EXTEND program

and the sponsor of the News Team. 


I look forward to a great 2017/18 school year.  Please contact me with any questions or concerns.
